Although the world habits dangers of violence and gore,
a young child's task is mostly to play
and to explore.

The job of a mother involves knowing when to hold your child back from the dangers of the world, and making sure the child can handle himself when he becomes too old for you to keep him.

+ Use the mouse to control the mother.
+ You can keep your tiny child near your home protecting him from danger.
+ Letting your child explore alone allows him to gain experience and eventually be able to handle himself.

Needs some work

Does it have potential? Yes.
Is it fun right now? No.
i really liked the concept, but it doesnt work like you did it. i was able to keep him in until he got like 18 and then he walked up to the end of the screen and kept going up and down until he eventually died because he walked through the same monster all the time. Level ups didnt restore his life? Not even slightly? i dont get how to beat this game pure luck is on your side. you should really work on the ki and balance things out a bit.
Hape you don't lose interest in this game, because i'd love to see another version of it :)

Buggy, otherwise good.

I like this game. It's definately an original idea. It's a bit buggy though which made it difficult to play. The controls need some work, as I found when you were close to the edge of the boundry, the mother would get stuck a lot. Also, everytime your kid picks up a treasure, the game goes into an infinite loop. If these were fixed, it'd be a lot more playable. Other than that, great idea.

I'm not sure this can even be classified as a game. So you move around your mouse, which controls the mother..... then you have this kid, but you can't control him.... how much fun is it to swing around your mouse and wait for a giant creature to kill your kid?
The thing I hated the most was when I see this kid walking towards a huge monster, and what can I do about it???? Nothing. Wait to die, and restart the game.
I thought it was funny that before I even figured out how the game worked I got 3 medals.
Not a fan of this at all.
Crazy repetitive music, decent graphics. Needs Work.

Has ALOT of potential, but needs work!

This game has a great premises and the ability to become something great. The idea of controlling not the hero but his mother, is a interesting and unique idea! The gameplay is quite simple, yet engaging enough to hold some interest.

Alas, the game isnt great and needs work if its to become better. Glitches and some gameplay tweaks are needed here and an improvement in graphics would be nice aswell.

There is a bug after you gain the "Treasure Hunter" badge the game keeps repeating itself.

I do enjoy the game though, for everyone who says you make the same games with the same morals and the same procedure, they can stop talking for once. This game isn't like your others.

The game length was average, it wasn't too long, but it wasn't too short either. It was entertaining and the moral of the game was short and simple, without you having to enforce it.

Still gotta' fix that bug, tho! ^ ^ 8/10 - 4/5
